“For the wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.” (Romans 6:23)
December 4, 2018 - For one searching for salvation this verse may be confusing as those searching have not yet found and so understanding has not yet come to those who still seek.
The gift of life is given through the sacrifice of Jesus on the cross of calvary. By his death Jesus took the sin of all mankind and cast them into the deepest sea, fulfilling the Father’s requirement for forgiveness and salvation.
“My son, fear the Lord and the king, and do not join with those who do otherwise, for disaster will arise suddenly from them, and who knows the ruin that will come from them both.” (Proverbs 24:21-22)
A caution from the Proverbs for the Christian follower of Christ. One who strives to follow the will of the Lord must resist the temptations of the world for to be saved is to be removed from the world.
November 13, 2018 - The first official act of the new government of the United States of America was not to pass a law, but, to officially dedicate the new country, the new republic, to the service of the Lord God.

October 25, 2018 - Idolatry, the worship of idols, one of the Ten Commandments of God says; "You shall have no other gods before me. You shall not make for yourself a carved image, or any likeness of anything that is in heaven above, or that is on earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth. You shall not bow down to them or serve them; for I the Lord your God am a jealous God," (Deuteronomy 5:7-9) This is the very first of the Ten Commandments of God, for without upholding this the first, there is no need for one to try and keep the rest.
October 17, 2018 - Many are they who would say, ”Oh, that I too might be blessed, that I might live a life of less trouble, a life of joy and not sorrow."
There is just such a life available to all who seek it, for as the Bible says, “Seek and you shall find.”
“Blessed are those whose way is blameless, who walk in the law of the Lord! Blessed are those who keep his testimonies, who seek him with their whole heart, who also do no wrong, but walk in his ways!” (Psalm 119:1-3)
October 9, 2018 - One cannot turn on the television, or listen to the radio, or read the newspaper without seeing evidence of all the hate and turmoil in our world today. Everyday, without exception, I hear others saying; “Oh what is wrong with us, why is America in such turmoil.”
This is no secret except for the ignorance of the teachings of Gods Word for as we shall see within the next few lines of print, there are answers to our questions, solutions to the problems of society today, just as there have been for generations.
October 2, 2018 - What is wrong with this world one might ask, why are things in such turmoil, why do so many people seem to hate others who do not believe as they would like, why is there so little love among people today?
We find the answer to these questions in Gods Word, for as it says; “To the Lord our God belong mercy and forgiveness, for we have rebelled against him and have not obeyed the voice of the Lord our God by walking in his laws, which he set before us by his servants the prophets.” (Daniel 9:9-10)
